Help

I live near Orlando, FL and am having trouble finding a decent doctor for my type 1 diabetes. I tried out a doctor and they were horrible, never helped and just plain rude. Now I'm nervous and picky as to finding a new one.

Any advice on how to find a good one?

Can you get to USF in Tampa?

If you have insurance it may depend on who they will allow you to see. You're on the east side? USF has a great endo dept connected to the med school.

Re: Help

If going to USF will help you meet up with a great Endo team, then I would do it. Hey it is only 4 times a year and I think the drive would

be worth it. That is, if it will benefit you. It is worth a try at least.
